Neck-Through Body  (or "Through" neck)-  This neck is one piece of wood glued into the body, passing through its entire length. The result is a very stable, solid-feeling guitar. Some people insist that this design creates maximum sustain because the strings are attached from both ends to one piece of wood. You will likely pay more for a guitar with this type of neck joint because it is more costly to produce. An if it becomes damaged (hard to do!), it will be more expensive to fix.

This neck is bolted onto the body with four screws. Some people insist that it offers somewhat less sustain because it provides less wood to wood contact (we've seen many killer bolt-on neck guitars with more sustain than many set-neck models). A bolt-on neck has become very popular in guitars and does have its advantages. It is not expensive to make. It creates a bright, focused tone which is perfect for lead guitar.  And, if the neck becomes damaged, it is possible to remove it and repair…
